Editorial Reviews

Author of The Stand, The Shining & Dr. Sleep - Stephen King
“Who’s the scariest guy in America? Probably Jack Ketchum.”

“Ketchum has become a kind of hero to those of us who write tales of horror and suspense. He is, quite simply, one of the best in the business.”

Meet the Author

 

Jack Ketchum’s debut novel, Off Season (1981)—an updating of the Sawney Beane story—prompted The Village Voice to publicly scold its publisher for publishing violent pornography. Since then, he has published 12 additional novels and several short story collections.He has won numerous Stoker Awards, including Best Collection 2003 (Peaceable Kingdom), Best Long Fiction 2003 (Closing Time), Best Short Fiction 2000 (Gone), and Best Short Fiction 1994 (The Box).Four of his books were recently filmed as movies: The Lost (2001), The Girl Next Door (2005), Red (2008) and Offspring (2009). 

 Lucky McKee wrote and directed the cult favorite May, which in turn got him selected to write and direct an episode (Sick Girl) in the first season of Showtime’s Masters of Horror series, alongside such directors as Tobe Hooper, Dario Argento, Joe Dante, John Landis, and John Carpenter.

    Saw the movie had to read the book

    This was just like the movie except for bits and pieces, nothing major. I really enjoyed it alot . I only wish they would have gone into the woman' s past more. That would have been good in understanding her more. Other than that its not for kids under 16 , in my opinion. I think it is to graphic. I enjoyed the plot.

    I enjoyed this book much more than Offspring and Off Season. The book takes readers into the mind of two majorly dysfunctional characters; the Woman and Cleek. It provides fans with gore, and a sick and twisted plot line that those who love Kethcum crave. Great book!

    Awesome!!!

    This is a great horror story. It was dark, twisted and gory. My kind of book. I love this writer. He is not afraid to get down and dirty to write a good horror novel. You can't go wrong buying anything written by this author. I hope there is another one in this series.

    True Horror

    I was intrigued by the news generated about the movie and decided to check this book out.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the subtle twists.

    I highly recommend this.
